Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara on Sunday praised his team-mates for their clinical display in crushing minnows Canada in their opening World Cup match here.
"We were pretty clinical, the spinners and the fast bowlers did exactly what we wanted," Sangakkara said after his side crushed Canada by 210 runs.
He heaped praise on senior batsman Mahela Jayawardene for the win on Sunday.
"It was set up by the openers. The real star was Jayawardene, it is very easy to bat with him. On wickets like this, it is nice to get an idea of what’s going on. That’s why I took a bit of time, it was good that Mahela came back to bring the momentum our way," said Sangakkara who scored a 87-ball 92.
Jayawardene was happy that Sri Lanka began on a winning note in the tournament but said that he was a bit tired after the knock.
